    Matthew Macy reviewed Whittier Ridge - Lakes Loop Trail

    Amazing hike! More difficult than the 2k elevation puts on. You ascend and descend into 3-4 valleys with lakes. The lakes are quite beautiful, but not all of the 5 lakes along the way are easily accessible. We started at Norway pass and went right at the lakes loop. The first few miles before the loop fork is pretty straight forward with an amazing view of Spirit Lake and Mount St. Helens. The loop starts to get difficult. The bugs pick up at this point as well. But the views from the loop are some of the best I've ever experienced. Constant views of the Goat Rocks, Adams, Rainier, Hood and St. Helens. And a few moments where you can see all 5! This occurred during the 2.1 mile ridge line traverse about 3/4 of the way into the loop. This section is slow going and a bit sketchy. If you are slow and steady there is no danger though. But expect this section to take 2+ hours. We got lost a few times in this area by following goat trails. Be wary they are well worn but as you get further from trail they start to get very rugged and choppy then eventually disappear. This was a long and strenuous hike but well worth it. Absolutely stunning!
